Table 1. Application Profiler Settings

Setting

Description

Use Deepest Registry Path

If you enable this setting, only the most specific registry paths are kept.

This setting is enabled by default.

Support HKLM

If you enable this setting, access to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE registry hive is included in the analysis. If you disable the setting, only HKEY_CURRENT_USER is taken into account.

This setting is disabled by default.

Enable Registry Exclusions

Controls whether registry exclusions are applied.

This setting is enabled by default.

Enable File Exclusions

Controls whether file system exclusions are applied.

This setting is enabled by default.

Show Unsupported File Access

User Environment Manager supports managing file system settings only in the user profile subfolders. Application Profiler filters out any file access outside the user profile subfolders by default. If you enable this setting, access to files outside the user profile is included in the Flex configuration file. FlexEngine cannot process such entries, but this feature can be useful when you analyze an application that is saving its settings in nonstandard locations.

This setting is disabled by default.

Warn If Project Not Saved

If you enable this setting, Application Profiler displays a warning message when you start a new profiling session or exit Application Profiler, and the project file for the previous session is not saved.

This setting is disabled by default.

Default Save Path

With this setting, you can configure a default location for the Save As dialog box that appears when you save the Flex configuration file. If you configure a default path, the Save As dialog box always opens to the configured folder.

This setting is not configured by default.

Save Icon

If you enable this setting, the icon of the analyzed application is saved when you save the Flex configuration file. If the User Environment Manager Management Console finds a .ICO file next to a Flex configuration file with the same name, it uses that icon in the tree.

This setting is enabled by default.

Browse Local Profile

If you enable this setting, the Flex Config File editor completes the registry and file system paths with information from the user profile.

This setting is enabled by default.

Display Predefined Settings Size

If you enable this setting, and you select Save Config File with Predefined Settings, Application Profiler displays the size of the generated predefined settings archive.
